Confronted with the past
I was invited to a bbq this weekend where I encountered my old self incarnated in another human being and multiplied by two. It is hard to describe. This individual was absolutely pessimistic and determined to isolate the host while entrapping them into a discussion of how they are right and that is that. I used to be a grumpy pessimistic discussion leader. Funnily it was me who tried to steer the host into a safe haven. I looked at this person and actually felt sorry for not being able to see the nice things in life and also being so pigheaded in their opinions. I mean you do not always have to agree on everything but at least accept that there are different opinions and people are entitled to their own. There is nothing worse than someone who cannot accept other peoples opinions.
I used to be soooo pessimistic about things. Coming out of the depression I wanted things to change. I did not want to have to fight for everything and avoid each thing becoming a challenge. There is this saying that says focus on the positive to attract positive. I do believe there is a truth in it. Maybe not in the sense of actual magnetism but likeminded likes to stick to likeminded. I realised that pessimistic people pulled me down and I no longer needed or wanted to be surrounded by people with that mindset.
I want kindness, good friends, upbeat people, respect and fun. So be kind to attract kindness is what I live by. Some days I feel grumpy too or have a bad day too but nonetheless, I try to stay optimistic and not give up. This mindset has helped me tremendously not just attracting the right people but also reminding me constantly that I want good things for myself, challenging myself to become a better person in the process.
So be kind to attract kindness is what I live by.
Ask and the universe will answer
I have always been fortunate to get a lot of what I asked for from the cosmos. Mainly it came with an odd twist. I have learned that if you ask the universe you shall receive. The requested wishes may not fulfil themselves exactly when and how you expected. Sometimes the universe chooses to execute things in the manner it deems suitable for you.
I put my faith in the universe to know what is best for me and ask kindly and humbly for what I need. Yes, I have lost my cool with cosmos, but I forgive it, as nothing is deemed to be perfect. Every individual being and object has its flaw but depending on the eye of the beholder it is visible or not to you.
